1st Graders Sifting Through Soil with a Civil Engineer

First Grade Students from Mrs. Till's and Mrs. Shriver's classes spent the morning exploring soil with civil engineer/GREEN Charter Parent, Mr. Gonzalez. After discussing the exciting career of a civil engineer, the class dove into the Earthly materials.  

The 1st graders analyzed samples of top soil, sand, and clay and were able to use their senses to fully compare and contrast the materials. They discussed which type of soil would be best for plant growth.

They headed back to class with renewed interest in learning more about soil and finding out what lives in soil.
